Incarcerated Lil Boosie has a young hip-hop protegee in his family - the star's nine-year-old daughter has turned rapper to promote positivity in youngsters.
The star, real name Torrence Hatch, is currently serving a four-year sentence for drug and gun possession and violating parole from a previous conviction. He is also due to stand trial next month (Aug11) after pleading not guilty to a first-degree murder charge relating to a 2009 shooting in Louisiana.
However, his young daughter Iviona Hatch is hoping to right her dad's wrongs by rapping about making the most of your life to boost awareness of America's U Hatin? campaign.
She says, "I believe in 'U Hatin?' because it teaches people to stop and think about what they are doing and saying, this is opposed to pulling people down."
Lance Silver, chairman of the campaign, adds, "Iviona's songs are about having a high self-esteem, getting a good education, listening to your parents and believing in your dreams. She does all of this through entertaining rhymes and storytelling with the same swag as her daddy."
Iviona will release her first track, So Hot, in August (11).
